Kingsford Heights Municipal Water Rate Case: Public meeting and hearing scheduled for September 23

Two public events are scheduled for Tuesday, September 23 regarding the Kingsford Heights Municipal Water Utility's rate increase request. Both events will take place at the Kingsford Heights Community Center, 515 Wayland Road:

Current water rates for Kingsford Heights were approved in 1992. Under the town's request, the monthly water bill for a residential customer using 6,000 gallons or less would increase from $23.46 to $31.98. According to the town's filing with the IURC, the additional revenues would cover increases in operating and maintenance costs.

The OUCC - the state agency representing consumer interests in IURC proceedings - is reviewing the town's proposal and is currently scheduled to file its report in this case on October 3.

Consumers who are unable to attend the September 23 events are encouraged to submit written comments to the OUCC in advance. Comments should include the consumer's name, address, and a reference to IURC Cause No. 43502-U. Consumers can send comments to the OUCC by mail, fax or the Internet:

Additional information on this case is available on the OUCC Website at Consumers with questions about submitting written comments can contact the OUCC's consumer services staff toll-free at 1-888-441-2494.

(IURC Cause No. 43502-U)
